I'm trying to package dSpace 6.1 and I'm having problems configuring the response file correctly. I use the dSPACE_MasterSetup.exe file, as I'm installing more than one component, to record the response file, but every time I try to silently install the software, the License Agreement dialog screen appears.
I've checked the response file and it is recorded the dilog as type SprintfBox with a Result of 1. I've tried setting the dialog type as SdLicense (Result 1) and SdLicense2 (Result 1), but I can't get the response file to send the correct response to the dialog screen.
Has any seen this before; or does anyone know of a tool that reveals what type of dialog screen that is being displayed and what return values it will take?

From your message, this sounds like a traditional Installshield setup and not an Installshield MSI. If so, there may not be a way to hide that dialog because the developer can add custom dialogs. I remember I ran into the same issue with a different application using Installshield.

At the link below is some good information about different versions of Installshield and other packaging programs. Read the paragraph that start out "Oh, one more thing" in the Installshield section. It presents two courses of action for you. [:)]

Of *course* it's a traditional IS setup! How many MSI-based set-up stubs do you know which support ISS files? :)

I seem to recall having a similar problem a while ago. IIRC, I loaded the EXE into a text editor so that I could see all the dialog names and deduced the culprit responsible from its name.
